17-year-old Sam Dalby could retain starting position for visit of the U’s

Sam Dalby could well retain his starting place in the Leyton Orient team for the visit of Cambridge United this afternoon (1pm kick-off).

The 17-year-old marked his full debut for the O’s with a goal after just four minutes of the Crawley Town match.

Dalby was replaced in the 59th minute having struggled with an ankle injury in the lead up to the fixture.

Yet Andy Edwards will be hoping the talented forward is fit and ready to face the in-form U’s later today.
